Mount Panorama, Bathurst (NSW) 22-23 November 2003
Update at 2.45 AM Sunday

Mount Panorama combatants began to enjoy a dry track as the Bathurst 24 Hour entered its second half this morning.

Peter Brock's #05 machine was back in the race lead at 2.45am -- both Monaros running different schedules ensuring the #05 and #427 cars took turns at the race lead.

A wiper problem is the only issue facing the #05 car at this stage -- making life difficult in wet conditions.

The Alzen Brothers Porsche took over the race lead in Class B -- the first change of any class leader since early in the race.

David Brabham continued to hold third place -- completed a long stint aboard the BE Racing Ferrari.
